    I've seen it happen once in 14 years in the motor trade it was on a jag s type I popped over to the customers house as he was sort of blaming us for a noise from the wheel since he'd had his mot done and found the outter part of the disc had sheared off from the inner part snapping all the cooling fins.
    Ive seen discs so thin that you can poke your finger through them like a paper bag but only break once

    Has done 100,000 miles but has had front discs before I bought it at about 70,000 miles (cheap discs possibly), It has broken around the hub, disc is not heavily worn, replaced rear discs about 4 months ago. She did brake hard she said, small country road at speed with lorry coming to meet her.
